Bruno's had good pizza and pasta but no atmosphere. None. It has a neon sign from the 50s, and feels like a trip back in time.

I am a little biased about this place. I have been coming here since I was a kid. We use to stand on the stairs and watch Gene flip the dough over his head as he made the pizzas (now you can watch his son do it!) Then we'd snag quarters and play songs on the jukebox or buy chicklets... More

I have been going to Bruno's since the 70s and have never been disappointed. That's a lot of pizza! I got my husband hooked when we were dating and then the now adult children. When the daughter from Charleston visits it is always on her list of restaurants to visit! Juanita & company do a great job keeping Gino's legacy... More

Been coming here with my family all my life. Family owned business. Pizzas and meatballs are made from scratch. (You can watch them toss the pizza dough!) They haven't redecorated since the 70s and the menu is pretty basic, but it'll always be a personal fave.

Bruno's has been there at least 50 years. It has regular customers, WMU and K-College students, and locals. The cheese is delicious! We order double cheese and it is heaven. The atmosphere is near zero--old booths and tables. But it doesn't matter because the food is so good!

My parents met at Bruno's back in 1970. The place looks the same!! Their pizza is to die for!! The crust is like no other. We always order it when we have out of towners and several times have ordered partially baked pizza's to deliver to friends homes in the U.P, Indiana, Illinois...etc. Once you've had it you crave it!!

Great pizza!!! Bruno's started my love of pizza as a child. My parents and I have enjoyed Bruno's for decades. My son is a fan also. We love Bruno's for the QUALITY of the pizza and the SERVICE (not nostalgia), Bruno's is not your typical restaurant pizza chain. It is a must taste pizza experience. Enjoy!!!!

This is the best pizza in Kalamazoo. Walking distance to Western Michigan University campus. Family friendly. Crust is crispy. Friendly professional staff.

My parents ate at Bruno's when they dated in College. The sausage pizza is truly Italian, and delicious. Watch them toss the pizza, play an oldie favorite on the jukebox, and enjoy the diner feel as this local family run business continues. Located between WMU and Kalamazoo College.
